Why We Do It? Is Spiritual Living Really Worth It?

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Family. Let me get real with you for a minute. Sometimes being spiritually minded is a pain in the a**.

You see, when we were in the church most of us taught to do the right thing because it guarantees you a place in heaven and prevents you from going to hell.  But, now that we have gotten older, more spiritually mature.  And, we realize the Divine does not reward or punish us because Nebercher – the Lord of Everything – our Perfect Creator –  is not biased or prejudice but truly objective and does not directly get involved in human affairs. Many of us lose sight as to why we are practicing being spiritual. In other words, we have no real goal or reason to be spiritually anymore.

What makes spiritual living even more gruesome and wish you had taken the blue pill like Cipher in the film the Matrix, is when you understand.  That part of the human spirit is subconscious, which means it controls all of our actions and behaviors that it indiscriminately learned from others – both right and wrong. Indiscriminately means that like a child, our subconscious solves problems by motivating us to do what Easy and what we feel, not necessarily what is Right. Therefore, most of the problems we have in our life begin in our head because we did not learn the unbiased, impersonal, or Right Way to solve our problems.

It all comes to head if you have a nagging wife that does not understand that the quickest way to drive a man away is to nag at him by focusing on petty faults and errors. Instead of being considerate, appreciative and giving praise about the wonderful qualities that both the husband and wife have.

Or, it all comes to a head when a brooding husband does not understand that psychologically speaking he commits adultery.  If he gives attention to destructive and negative thoughts, which can easily result in sharp and harsh remarks, anger, resentment and hostility. Instead of love, appreciation and honor.

Yes, all of this spiritual stuff comes to head when you are at your workplace and you feel that you are being taken advantage of by a jealous and self-entitled coworker who does more complaining than work.

And, the list of problems goes on…

These are all challenging situations that make us question why are we trying to be spiritual and what’s the purpose of it anyway.

Don’t throw in the towel. The reward or the reason we are here practicing spirituality is for spiritual power. This spiritual power comes from the Amun Ra moment, which is why it is important to ignore the feelings that motivate you to do the Easy thing, and instead do what is Right.

 

No, doing what is Right is not always going to be easy but the more you do it. The stronger you become. This is not pie-in-sky religious babble. This is where the real power comes from, which is the reason “they” do not want you to seriously practice Kemetic spirituality.

It is important to understand that spiritual living is not like religious living. In religious living, when you have a problem or a person annoying the crap out of you. You are taught to pray to have them removed from your life or pray that God can rescue you from this annoying person. But, in spiritual living, you invoke the Power of God so that the annoying individual will change.

Does this mean that you are supposed to take everyone’s crap and just let people walk all over you? The truth is that there is no definite answer to this question. For some people they can be like Dr. Martin L. King Jr. because they have a high tolerance level but for others they have short tolerance level. Before you judge who is right or wrong in regards to their tolerance level, think of how tolerant our Creator is towards us.

In fact, think of how patient, understanding, loving, etc. our Creator is towards us. Do you think that our Perfect Creator doesn’t want to just descend to the planet and smack us and say, “You are GOD! Stop acting like a FOOL!”?

But, why doesn’t our Nebertcher do it? Because how else would we learn.

Hello World!

15 03 2010

Hetepu (Peace to You All) Family, my name is Derric Moore and I along with several netizens around the USA created the Land of Kam website in 2001 because we were very interested in the  Kamitic (Kemetic, Khamitic or simply the Ancient Africans of Egypt) spiritual tradition but lived in very remote areas away from actual spiritual communities.  Several of us had dealings with several Kamitic spiritual study groups and had interacted with others in various Afro-Diaspora traditions, so we understood the importance of continuing our studies but found it extremely difficult to do so without any support.  We also understood the importance of our ancestors, or at least we thought we did from an intellectual perspective, so we all had an ancestral altar.  It was through my ancestors that I was given the name “Rau Khu” and this is how the Land of Kam was created.  It was created basically as a platform to encourage and inspire each other (and others) to continue reading and studying these Kamitic concepts and principles.

Then several years later, my body became deathly ill, so naturally I being the main contributor of the site had to take a hiatus, while focusing all of my attention to attaining, regaining and maintaining my health.  It was during this time, as I literally fought to survive, I had a chance to see Kamitic spirituality from a unique perspective because; I was functioning from a different state of consciousness sometimes referred to as the Death Awareness. Simply put, if you don’t know what the afterlife holds or have no proof that heaven or hell exists, how can you live your life on this material plane? When you get a true glimpse of what happens to the soul after we physically die or what happens after death, you have a better understanding and appreciation for life. That’s when you really come to understand that life is an adventure and that you have no time to deal with any drama or foolishness.

It was from this awareness as I literally applied the Kamitic concepts and principles to my life in order to overcome my illness and regain my health, that I made a very deep connection with my ancestors and guardian spirits.  That’s when I discovered that the core of Kamitic spirituality is an ancestral shamanistic tradition that focuses upon healing or maintaining Maa (balance, order, holism, etc.). This unique understanding made me realize what I had known all along that biologically and culturally speaking, the Kamitic people were black and brown skinned Africans.  This meant that despite what some try to claim, true Kamitic spirituality (like most African derived religions and traditions) is not a “book religion or practice”.  In other words, all of the books you have read about the Kamitic mental science, Kamitic religion, Kamitic tradition, Kamitic philosophy, Kamitic Way of Life, etc. aren’t going to teach you about true Kamitic Spirituality. The only way to learn true Kamitic Spirituality, which is essentially Ancient African Spirituality, is to live it by establishing a relationship with the Divine through your ancestors.  This is alluded to in the Legend of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris), which is how Hru (Hrw, Heru, Horus) by working with his ancestor was able to defeat his uncle Set with the power of God or Ra/Rau. A lot of times people get all caught up in the science that they forget that most of the grand edifices of Kamit were built and dedicated to the honorable dead – ancestors (aakhu).

Knowing that the Kamitic initiation or mystery systems are really about being reborn with a new state of awareness, inspired me to make drastic changes to the Land of Kam.  Since, Kamitic Spirituality is essentially Ancient African Spirituality, it became more important than ever to make it known that while it is culturally important to know that the Kamitic people were black and brown skinned Africans. The Kamitic Way is basically an Ancestral Practice or Way – meaning it has nothing to do with the color of one’s skin per se but rather one’s African-derived and influenced culture.  In other words, if an individual(s) is not biologically and/or culturally akin to the Kamitic people, they would have to heavily rely upon the writings of archeologists and other Western trained scholars just to get, as some would call it, “one leg” or one side of the picture.  This is because they have no ancestral link (biologically or culturally), which would ultimately contribute to them having an identity crisis and inspire them to adopt various forms (customs, attire, etc.) without having a clear understanding of the concepts and principles.

Understanding this, the Land of Kam websites and blogs were created to encourage, empower and inspire people throughout the African Diaspora, to improve their life by investing in their ancient African ancestral legacy.  It is not as difficult as some make it seem. Yes, the mental sciences are deep but they are nothing when you truly begin to explore the mysteries of the Spirit because it all part of our ancient African legacy.   When you truly understand what Kamitic Spirituality is really about, it becomes clear why some have tried to make it so difficult for us to really understand, because it is not in the books but in the mind, heart and soul of every Kamitic descendant.
